Creative mindset is one of the abilities that students need to develop in order to compete in their era. Students must also be prepared to face changes along with the times in terms of technology. However, social studies learning at SDN 1 Banjareja has not led to achieving these skills. Learning should be adapted to the nature and development of the times so that students can master the necessary life skills as a provision for their future life. The use of the Google Earth program which is woven into the teachings of Tri N (Niteni, Niroake, and Nambahake) is one of the suggestions for improving the learning process which aims to increase student creativity. The purpose of this research is to foster students' creativity when they study social studies. A qualitative descriptive research methodology was applied. Data collection techniques include observation, interviews, recording, and assessing creative attitudes using rubrics. The process of data reduction, data presentation, and drawing conclusions is used to analyze the data. Based on research findings, integrating Google Earth into Tri N learning can help students become more creative in making their own creations. The students' innovative works that they make are proof of that. This happens because the Google Earth application is a component of science and technology that can help students in the current teaching and learning process and has a number of benefits, including the ability to show how the world looks in three dimensions. Strengthened by the niteni, niroake, and nambahake phases of Tri N, students can innovate by taking their original ideas and developing them. in such a way that the integration of Google Earth into Tri N social studies learning can encourage more creative thinking.
